Princess Diana Divorce Settlement: On November 9th, Netflix subscribers may look forward to the arrival of the fifth season of The Crown. Imelda Staunton will replace Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II, with Elizabeth Debicki and Dominic West playing Diana and Charles, respectively, in the hit historical drama.
The fifth season, which takes place in the 1990s, will center on the problems that led to the end of their marriage, particularly the then-affair Princes with Camilla Parker Bowles. The “Camillagate” release of a private phone call between Camilla and Charles became public knowledge following Charles and Diana’s divorce.
When did the couple grow apart and file for divorce, and what was the basis of Princess Diana’s alimony payments? Everything you need to know is listed here.
When did Diana and Charles separate?
In 1977, when Diana was 16 and Charles was 29, the future king and queen met for the first time. Charles came into town over the weekend to go pheasant shooting with Sarah, Diana’s older sister.
In February of 1981, Charles proposed to Diana, and in July of that year, they were married in a grand ceremony at Westminster Abbey. William was the couple’s firstborn in June 1982, and then Prince Harry arrived in September 1984. Their breakup was reported in late 1992, following a tumultuous relationship. They officially split up in 1996.

What exactly did Diana have to sign in her divorce agreement?
For her divorce settlement, Princess Diana demands £35 million in the upcoming season of The Crown. She allegedly got a one-time payment of £17 million plus an annual salary of £400,000. Diana retained the title “Princess of Wales,” but was compelled to relinquish “Her Royal Highness.”
Reportedly, Queen Elizabeth II was fine with Diana keeping the title, but Charles reportedly wanted it taken away.
According to a statement released by Buckingham Palace at the time, Diana would be “considered as a member of the royal family” and “would from time to time receive invitations to state and national public occasions” at the invitation “of the sovereign or the Government.”

As this arrangement was already well established and both boys spent part of the year at boarding school, the decision to award Charles and Diana joint custody of Prince William and Prince Harry was believed to be very uncomplicated.
Princess Diana was also allowed to keep her Kensington Palace residence. She had the entire third level, which included apartments eight and nine, to herself. In addition, she was given access to the St. James’s Palace state apartments.
Jewels collected during the marriage were also allowed to be kept by the departing royal, with the exception of the Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara given to her by Queen Elizabeth II. As part of his proposal to Kate Middleton, Prince William used his mother’s engagement ring.
To cap it all off, Princess Diana was given free rein to use the royal family’s private jets whenever she wished.
